  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine half and half, milk, ¼ cup sugar, salt and orange zest. Bring just to a boil, turn off heat and cover for 10 minutes.
  2. Whisk together egg yolks and remaining ¼ cup of sugar in a separate bowl.
  3. Slowly pour hot milk into egg mixture, whisking constantly.
  4. Pour everything back into saucepan and simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly to keep bottom from burning. Cook until mixture has thickened enough to cover the back of a spoon.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Stir cranberry sauce into the ice cream base.
  6. Churn according to machine instructions.
